Chris Porter will want to be involved in all of Colchester’s games, we’ll also want him involved in as many as possible, but certain games he’ll – like any player against a formerly side – obviously want to be involved with more, such as the one against Sheffield United.

Tony Humes has confirmed to the Gazette that it isn’t going to happen for Porter though.

Having suffered a setback in training last week Porter, who played over 100-matches for Sheffield United after signing for them from Derby, will miss out on a return to Bramall Lane with the U’s tonight.

That negative reaction in training, he wouldn’t have made the three-all draw with Chesterfield regardless, will see him out for ‘at least another week’ with Humes saying.

‘Chris wasn’t that near (to playing against Chesterfield) – he trained in the early part of the week.

‘He got a bit of a reaction and it didn`t really get any better.

‘He won’t be right for Tuesday but we just have to wait and see how he progresses and develops. But we’re probably looking at at least another week before we get there.’

The ankle injury sustained in the two-two draw with Blackpool on the opening day of the season has kept out the Colchester captain for the duration of the season so far, as the U’s go in search of that elusive League 1 win!

Will it be tonight? If it is it’ll be without Porter again of course….
